3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber hazy body, to fast disappearing off white head; Very pleasant banana yoghurt aroma, a very small amount of very dense clove aromas backs it very well and brings lots of complexity; very big body soft with huge very fitting carbonation, the larger amount of alcohol is well fitting; Long big warm yoghurt aromas, very long fell, balanced and excellent. Excellent beer the higher abv fits the wheat very well!
Bottle from Carrefour Supermarket, La Flotte, Ile de Re, Charente-Maritime, France. Cloudy white-straw coloured with a thin white head. It has a sweet lemon and warming fruity body with vanilla and herbs on the spicy finish. Good but too high an ABV for the flavour. stupre (538) - Nanterre, FRANCE - MAY 28, 2017
33cl bottle purchased @ l’Ile de Ré. Witbier très classique mais qu’on a peu l’habitude de trouver en France. Les codes du style sont bien respectés. StueyD (1586) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2016
A cloudy Amber coloured beer, fizzy but no head. A light but typical wheat beer aroma, tropical fruit and spice. Dry and fizzy mouthfeel. The taste again, typical wheat beer flavours, cinnamon spice, banana and mango tropical fruit, plus a white wine light tartness in the background. The finish is tart and fruity, with a hint of spice.
Bottle from Intermarché, Salles Sur Mer, Charente Maritime, France.

0,33l bottle from Un amour d’épicerie, La Rochelle. Pours hazy golden with a medium head. Aroma is malts, wheat and yeast. Flavor is malts, wheat, citrus, yeast, alcohol and coriander. Very nice. Deu (949) - Nantes, FRANCE - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle in Sainte-Meria-de-Ré. Nice but classic white Belgian beer. I still recommend it. sebletitje (10477) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2010
Bottle @ the brewery.
Hazy orange, white head.
aroma, yeasty, fruity and malty with notes of gains and mild bready nose, some banana.
flavors, same lingering yeasty palate with banana esters, malty, with a full body, hints of spices, puree like fruits/tropical, lingering roast, vegetal aspect and higher abv helps this one gain a little ground on the others brewed by Br. de Ré.
I enjoy their beers, but the yeast and the Hefe aspect make most of them light variations of one another, lacking some character.
